Visit the remains of the first Christian church of Greenland. The church was build around the year 1300 and is situated in the same area that Erik The Red inhabited when coming to Greenland in the year 985, called Austurbygd. (Eastern settlement)

In the Eskimo tradition, there is a legend about Hvalsey. According this legend, there was open war between the Norse chief Ungortoq and the Eskimo leader K’aissape. The Eskimos made a massive attack on Hvalsey and burned down the Norse inside their houses, but Ungortoq escaped with his family. K’aissape conquered him after a long pursuit, which ended near Kap Farvel.
